Amherst Senior Center Collects PJ's & Books for Children

The generous, caring members, staff and community members helped the Amherst Center for Senior Services collect 105 pairs of new pajamas, 160 children’s books and $154 in cash for the Buffalo Chapter of The Pajama Program. Items were collected throughout September and October for area children that are living with their families below the poverty level, in desperate need of food, clothing and shelter and others are waiting to be adopted. Most of these children have never enjoyed the simple comfort of having a parent tuck them in a bedtime with warm, clean pajamas and a bedtime story. These two simple gifts of pajamas and books let the children know that someone cares.

The Buffalo Chapter of The Pajama Program will distribute these items through agencies in the Buffalo area including Cornerstone Manor, Baker Victory Services, Child and Family Services and the Salvation Army. “We are grateful once again to the Amherst Center for Senior Services for all the amazing donations, including so many pairs of cozy, warm pajamas and beautiful books to go along with them,” noted Jenn Bishara, Buffalo Chapter President of The Pajama Program. “You have given our kick off to the danger season a great start”.

The Amherst Center for Senior Services is located at 370 John James Audubon Parkway in Amherst, behind the Audubon Library. To reach the Center, please call 636-3050.
